Yellowtail trumpeter

The species commonly inhabits estuaries during the warmer months of the year, moving offshore in winter to avoid the influx of fresh water from swollen rivers.

The Yellowtail trumpeter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater, brackish, marine environment.

The Yellowtail trumpeter is endemic to Australia and Papua New Guinea, ranging from Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia along the north coast of Australia to Bowen, Queensland and north along the coast of southern Papua New Guinea. More
